Numbers 1-10 in ASL from here.
numbers in BSL are wrapped in a lot of dialect, is it the same in ASL?
To my understanding, not really, but there could be regional differences in how the movement works for each number. For example, the way that I sign the number 10 is not in a single distinct motion, as the picture depicts; I shake the thumbs-up on its axis a few times.
The ASL counting system is actually one of the most complex things (linguistically speaking) I’ve ever encountered in that there are distinct movements for every number from 1-19, and then even certain movement rules are applied to multiples of 11 and also the specific numbers 67-69, 76-79, 86-89, and 96-98.

the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
the fact that over 300,000 other people know exactly what this feels like too is a source of great comfort
especially if it’s a kiss
